Project description

Electric vehicles (EVs) will play a big role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector. As such, it is important to develop technologies addressing charging management in a holistic view of charging supply/delivery management for EVs and communication by EVs to the smart grid infrastructure system. The MSCA-funded EVOLVE project will design, develop and test several technologies considering the holistic view of EV charging by exploiting scientific excellence and the expertise of academic and industrial players. The project will adapt and manage the fundamental networking and computational resources, design innovative algorithms based on AI and machine learning, and develop communication protocols, software systems and user interfaces.

Role of Ghent University
Ghent University is the lead of WP4 “Integration of EV with beyond 5G infrastructure and smart grid” Ghent University is involved in the following tasks: Task 4.1 - Investigating seamless vehicular-to-everything (V2X) connectivity in multi-Tier and multi-RAT networks Task 4.2 - Enabling distributed intelligence in V2X communications through edge computing and on-device learning Task 6.3: Task 6.3: Demonstration of a federated learning solution for technology recognition in V2X
